Scolari ready to take on Greece

Luis Felipe Scolari is anxiously looking forward to obtaining some sort of revenge tomorrow evening as Portugal take on Greece in a rematch of the Euro 2004 Championship final between the two nations.

"I am very pleased to face Otto again," Scolari said.

"Of course I was disappointed after losing the Euro 2004 final but I have always had a good relationship with Otto. It is a mystical match because I have not won against them. Besides that it is important to see how we react against a compact team."

Scolari and Greece's coach Otto Rehhagel have become close friends since the final back in 2004.
